I said it when spring training opened and repeat it now after watching Rick Ankiel dazzle in Colorado--Colby Rasmus can take his time at Triple A. The Cardinals have their center fielder of the future.
Ankiel's two throws tonight were ridiculously good. Not just strong but perfectly accurate too. Ankiel may never make as many spectacular catches as Jim Edmonds but he'll throw out more runners. And Edmonds had an excellent arm. Ankiel is another league. You'll be seeing his throws all over ESPN's Sportscenter the next 24 hours. He's a remarkable athlete.
